2009-01 info/release notes missing[edit]

I fixed a bunch of broken links in the releases table. But I can't find the release notes for the 2009-01 CD distribution. They appear to be absent from the official release notes page too. If anyone knows where they are that would be a great help, thanks. --Xyiyizi 20:29, 28 May 2010 (UTC)

sidux -> aptosid[edit]

This article should be moved over to "aptosid" with "sidux" as redirect to "aptosid". Release history needs update, we need a new screenshot. --Martin Homuth-Rosemann (talk) 08:40, 14 September 2010 (UTC)


The project is based on the "unstable branch" but the opening paragraph says: "The goal of the distribution is to provide a stable, easy-to-use and cutting-edge free and open source operating system."

I would remove the word stable, but I am not sure if this is intentional or not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jonojuggles (talkcontribs) 19:06, 8 December 2011 (UTC)

The rationale behind deprecating Aptosid and calling it "discontinued"[edit]

A live CD Linux distro by definition should be a regularly updated distribution containing fresh and updated software. AptoSID creators insist that AptoSID can be installed and updated like a regular Linux distro[1]. However turning a LiveCD into a installable Linux distro defeats the purpose of a LiveCD - to be a distro you can easily use with new hardware. Artem-S-Tashkinov (talk) 06:58, 15 April 2014 (UTC)


Date format in table[edit]

The dates in the table under "Releases" are using the ISO 8601 format (YYYY-MM-DD).[1] May Wwwolf3 or another editor state the reason to use this format? (talk) 08:50, 18 November 2014 (UTC)
